Question about NEC PlasmaSync PX-42XR3A 42 in. HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

TV has no picture for some inputs. Areal does not work. I have tried plugging areal direct to back in TV (areal works on other TV, also tried rabbit ears) RCA (red, white and yellow) cables do not work in AV1 or AV 2. S Video works HDMI works Component inputs work. Its a NEX PXT42SV1 (sorry I couldn't find how to start a new problem as this model could not be found anywhere on forum)

No reception with rabbit ears

Check to see if you have the "Rabbit ears" plugged into the correct spot and you are on "Analog tv" if you are trying to use digital tv on "Rabbit ears" it can't send out a strong signal like the areal ontop of a house. You may need to get an adapter to broadcast a stronger signal but even better if you can connect to roof antena.

No sound on the tv

As TV and DVD playing reproduces sound, you have to check TVs tuner function first. Connect the TV to external areal by connecting areal via areal socket. Make an auto-tune function. Refer the user manual about how to make an auto-tune to local on-air program. Make sure that, the TV reproduces picture and sound normally. If it is correct, your TV is perfect in all respect. If not, the tuner to your TV should be replaced with same type and number.
